Rohingya Refugees Rescued In Indonesian Waters

More Rohinyga who are desperately fleeing Burma by boat were found in the Aceh province of Indonesia.  Like others who were previously rescued by the Sri Lankan navy, this group said Thai officials sabotaged their boat and later shot at them while they were at sea.  “We want to stay in any country with Muslims. We don’t mind where, Aceh is good too. But please don’t send us back to Myanmar. Just shoot all of us — we are better off dead than going back to our country,” said 21-year-old Farid Alam, one of the refugees.
